Niantic introduces new Pokémon to the mobile game Pokémon GO regularly for players to grow their Pokédex. These new additions also occasionally have unique and interesting catch requirements. One of the newest additions to the game, coming along during the Halloween 2022 event, is Zorua, the long-awaited shapeshifting Pokémon.
How to find and catch Zorua in Pokémon GO
Zorua is encountered and caught in a unique way; the only Pokémon caught in a similar way being Ditto. To catch Zorua, players need to have a Buddy Pokémon and walk with them throughout the day. This can be done by feeding Berries or Poffins to the Buddy Pokémon, which will cause them to walk around and accompany players in the overworld. Once the Buddy Pokémon is out and walking around, there is a chance that players can encounter a Zorua.
It will appear as if the Buddy Pokémon has duplicated itself in the overworld, but when caught, it will transform into Zorua. Once caught, Zorua can be evolved into Zoruark using 50 Zorua Candy. Zorua isn't extremely easy to come by, so players hoping to evolve this Pokémon should use Pinap Berries when catching it to increase the number of Candy awarded on catch.
